## SDN with VMware NSX-v (for vSphere)

In this page I’m collecting all the articles of the series “NSX for Newbies” .

Starting from the introduction to the core components to the implementation of the solution, you will have a step-by-step guide to follow so that you could easily build your own lab.

- NSX for Newbies – Part 1: Introduction to NSX for vSphere
- NSX for Newbies – Part 2: Nested home lab for NSX
- NSX for Newbies – Part 3: Install NSX Manager
- NSX for Newbies – Part 4: Preparing for Virtual Networking
- NSX for Newbies – Part 5: Configure Logical Switch Networks
- NSX for Newbies – Part 6: Distributed Logical Router (DLR)
- NSX for Newbies – Part 7: NSX Edge Gateway
- NSX for Newbies – Part 8: Dynamic routing with OSPF
- NSX for Newbies – Part 9: L2-VPN and stretched Logical Networks (on 6.1+)
- NSX for Newbies – Part 10: Network Address Translation (NAT) on NSX
- NSX for Newbies – Part 11: Load Balancing
- NSX for Newbies – Part 12: Configure IPsec VPN
- NSX for Newbies – Part 12: SSL VPN-Plus

The 2 last links (Part 8 and Part 9) are incorrect, if you could fix them 🙂

Thanks Timo for the heads-up, fixed 🙂

Hey Giuliano,

I have been trying to set up NSX from quiet a while now but havent been successful.. some insight would be helpful.

So i have a 10.a.b.x subnet as my external network.

So my vCenter in on 10.a.b.43

esx1 on 10.a.b.27

esx2 on 10.a.b.28

esx3 on 10.a.b.29

NSX manager is on 10.a.b.48

the three controllers on 10.a.b.211 212 and 213

The VXLAN IPs are 10.a.b.214 215 and 216

The physical gateway is 10.a.b.252

we have some subnets with no configuration

192.168.30.x/25 VLAN 130

192.168.31.x/25 VLAN 131

192.168.32.x/25 VLAN 132

192.168.33.x/25 VLAN 133

192.168.34.x/25 VLAN 134

192.168.35.x/25 VLAN 135

We have a vDS which connects to all 10.a.b.x IPs VLAN 113

So now I cant get the 192 ips to communicate with 10.a.b.x IPs no matter what i do…

I have tried all possible configs of Perimeter Gateway Edge and Even Logical Distributed Routers

Thanks in advance

Hi Rishab,

do you have a diagram somewhere? Who is routing between all the subnets you mentioned? I need a bit more details to be able to help 🙂

Thank you.

What a fantastic series. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this.

You’re welcome Jeff, I’m glad it’s helping someone out there 🙂
